've seen examples time and time again, pearl river, tennessee, the new life church in oregon, the lady in texas, where people have stopped the killer either in mid may hem by having a gun of their own, either a gun that was in a parked car or a gun that was in their person. i'm not saying that's the solution for everything but declaring a gun-free zone doesn't mean that you have a gun-free violence. that gray principle -- brave principal who tried to stop him, i admired her courage but it wasn't going to stop matters. i'm not saying she could have stopped him but making sure everyone in that school was unarmed, obviously that didn't help here. host: so we should arm school officials? guest: well, the police chief of st. louis has said that we should put that on the table. i'm not saying we should arm police officials but let's at least say that just like pilots. you know, pilots can be armed. we had a long battle about that. should pilots be able to carry whens on a plane that's pressurized where you could do all kinds of damage to the plane's fuselage? and we agree that pilots should

, i just realized a few days ago, aurora, the oregon shopping mall, and now sandy hook all involve young men in their early 20s all with the same weapon, ar-15. now, my brother is a british army colonel, i know a bit about guns, an ar-15 is not a harmless hunting rifle as some of these gun guys want to put it. it's a very high-powered assault weapon. it's a military weapon and it can fire if you have the right magazines and right capability with it and you can modify them any way you like. it can fire four to six bullets a second or 100 in a minute. now, imagine, this character adam lanza that went up to sandy hook. he had enough magazines and bullets to wipe out the entire school. if he hadn't killed himself, he could've done that. we could've looking at 600 children killed in a few minutes with these weapons. nobody can explain to me why these weapons are available to civilians. it makes no sense. >> well, and give us some comparison. because the numbers are pretty shocking. the number of gun deaths in the united states compared to any other industrialized country in the world. >
